Woodgrain whining & a winner

Woodgrain stresses me out.  Repeated same size elements stress me out.  Lining up patterns stresses me out.  So when I got this idea in my head to do this card, I must have wanted to cause myself stress.  I don't know what I was thinking.  The idea was to have equally sized squares and have the wood grain pattern line up.  That "sorta, kinda, maybe, but not really" happened...sigh.  But I'm not doing it again (already wasted a lot of paper) so this will have to do. All of this to play along with the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Autumn Woods.   Hee, hee.  Thanks to Cath (I guess) for a ginormous challenge!  The sketch is from Card Ideas for Paper Crafters.

So, you may know I was the Growing in Unity Girl this week...so that means I have to draw a winner from all the comments left this week....there were 140 fabulous comments... wow, I've never had that many comments in a week... and I appreciate every one of them... a big thank you to everyone... ok, have I stalled enough??????
